reinterpreting the past

An existing heritage building is transformed through the introduction of a modern, two-story addition that playfully reinterprets the distinctive geometry of the original dwelling through a contemporary lens. Designed by multi awarded studio Jackson Clements Burrows Architects, York St. House catches abundant natural light and garden aspects, with a simple material palette of brick, steel, and timber.
The project reflects a joyful take on the classic “box on the back” renovation. Its design embraces a nimble and sensitive response to a heritage context, while also meeting the specific needs of the client in creating a space that is a pleasure to live in ass apposed to the original home, previously dark and minimally ventilated.
It is a response that brings the outside in, recognizing the value of capturing garden views to enhance the internal experience, in turn, creating a sense of connection to the landscape, and nurturing a sense of calm engagement with one’s surrounds.
